If you are looking for a fun refreshing summer drink, try the strawberry thyme lemonade from the newest Real Simple Magazine. We made it this weekend- great! It was super easy and took very little time.
Here’s the recipe:
1. Boil 1 cup of sugar, 8 thyme sprigs, and 1 cup of water in a small saucepan, stirring occasionally until the sugar is dissolved.
2. Let cool and discard the thyme sprigs
3. Combine the thyme syrup, 1 quart of strawberries (chopped or sliced), 1.5 cups of fresh lemon juice, and 5 cups of water in a large pitcher.
4. Chill for 30 minutes.
5. Serve over ice with some extra sprigs. Adding a splash of vodka works well too.
We substituted basil for thyme and it was unbelievably delicious!
